AI Affective Virtual Human

Our affective real-time 3D AI virtual human project with face emotion recognition, movement recognition and full AI talking, gesture and reasoning.

A Social Metaphor-based Virtual Communities (voiceAvatar)

The design goal of this project was to develop avatars and virtual communities where the participants sense a tele-presence – that they are really there in the virtual space with other people. This collective sense of “being-there” does not happen over the phone or with teleconferencing; it is a new and emerging phenomenon, unique to 3D virtual communities.

Virtual CoLab Project

Virtual Colab and the real CECM Colab located at SFU.
Every smart-board computer display is matched by an in-world browser in 3d
which are able to display the same web based information for distanced collaborators.

SFU/FIT Collaborative Design Project

Collaboratively created cyber-fashion show, where sketches (white bg)
from FIT fashion designers are turned into 3d avatar models (black bg) by SFU students
– all using distance collaborative tools between two coasts and countries.
